. and it was a pure ideological election. because there were no personalities involved. you weren't voting for president. you want boating up and down on a figure. you were voting on issues and the dominant issue was obama and as a scare, the stimulus committee increase in spending, the expansion of the government. or to put it in a more abstract and grand was the difference between federal and state which was tilting more toward state. when the question is put that way, the country shows itself to be center-right country. had republicans been able to duplicate those conditions, that framework in 2012, they would have won. but it is not the same election. 2010 is almost purely ideological election. perhaps the most ideological since 1980. then you get to 2010, when you have a personality involved and you have a figure represents one side. romney is a good man. i like him. i think he is an honorable man, and i think he would have made an excellent president. but he was a bad candidate particularly in an election that could have been one had been an election about ideas and philosophy. i thi

. how are elected officials going to take the leadership that is necessary to do that? they have to hear from their constituents. we have to do the training of adults. we have to mobilize them. we have to engage them. we need them to share their experiences with the elected officials and congretional folks. without that engagement, that mobilization, we see so many pieces of legislation dying. >> i wonder, as much as we have to mobilize here, i want to focus on the fact this is an international problem. if you are spewing carbons in new jersey, they cross the border into canada. how do we begin to think of an international focus here? >> it's been a problem for a long time. the u.s. is consuming more than our population. it's affected the rest of the world. now we have problems like india and china are consuming based on an american model. they want what we want and they want to do it the way we did it. that means that you can't have any sort of climate agreement without everyone coming to the table. republicans used that as an excuse to do nothing. china is doing nothing -- no, it doesn

tomorrow or the next year. >> just ahead, the love fest and what a difference an election can make. >>> credit alert. stores can now charge you a so-called checkout fee. we'll tell you how much and where. plus this. >>> i really hope "30 rock" is ending this week, but i hope it has a long life in syndication. i look forward to another generation of nerds kind of finding it and enjoying it. >> it was so cool being able to roll out the red carpet and coming here today and them calling our name. >> backstage at the sag awards. newsroom has your all access pass to the winners and the moments everyone is talking about, including this wardrobe malfunction from jennifer lawrence. newsroom starts now. >>> good morning. thank you, everyone, for joining me. i'm carol costello. we begin with new developments from that horrifying nightclub fire in brazil. just a few minutes ago, we learn that the police arrested one of the club's owners and two members of the band who were using fireworks in their show. more than 230 people died in the inferno, nearly half of them college students from the nea
barber says we should have won the presidential election. and you had different people had different things to say. and i thought one of the more interesting was bobby jindal, the governor of louisiana. boy, he laid it out on the line. so let's just listen to what mr. jindal had to say. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. it's no secret we have a number of republicans that damagedly the brand this year with offensive and bizarre comment. i'm here to say we've had enough of that. >> schieffer: so there you go. newt gingrich, you ran and tried to get the nomination to run for president. bobby jindal has a point, though, doesn't he? >> it's ironic in 1976, irvin crystal wrote an essay for the "wall street journal" entitle the the stupid party which i commend every republican. ronald reagan came along with jack kemp and they basically moved us back to being an idea-oriented party. i think we clearly have to change. i don't agree-- i mean, maybe we could have won or not won this year. i was certainly wrong. i thought we would win up until about 5:30 election day. i wrote a paper
successful and how quickly they can hold parliamentary elections. the latest rumors are that it will be held in april. that may go to some way of helping to set in stone the new transition process and that in itself may help engender some confidence and stability that parliament may be able to work with the president to bring some stability. but you're looking at an extremely divisive and polarized device at the moment. trying to concoct something out of that appears very difficult at the moment. >> that's true. david, thanks very much. i'm sure we'll see more from him as we follow this story. >>> still ahead on the show, a new poll shows more than half of french people want the uk to leave the european union. can they really bid adieu to britain, though? we'll discuss that when we come back. >>> welcome back to the program. 58% of those polled want the uk to stay in the eurozone. another poll found 52% favored a british departure. meantime, david cameron's pledge to hold a referendum on eu membership if he wins the next election has given his conservative party a boost. still, the increase
would never see eye to eye, but the presidential election appears to have changed that, and now a bipartisan group of eight senators is poised to announce their plan today. illinois democrat dick durbin is one of those senators. he says the stars have finally aligned on this major issue. >> we have virtually been going for maybe 25 years without a clear statement about immigration policy. that's unacceptable in this nation of immigrants. >> the plan laid out in this five-page documents put together by gang of eight senators would overhaul the immigration system. the plan includes a pathway to citizenship for the roughly 11 million immigrants already in the country. it would require those with no serious criminal background to register with the government, pay a fine and back taxes, but not before federal authorities put more unmanned drones and agents along the border. the plan also includes a guest worker program that loosens restrictions for people who work in the agricultural industry as well as their children. robert mendez helped draft the bill. >> first of all they expect
the party that we won elections. we won by 40 -- you know, we won 49 states. we would laugh at democrats because they were always on defense. they were always out of the mainstream. and we won five out of six elections. democrats now have won five out of the last six elections and the popular vote. what's the difference? why is that? >> well, as you noted, i'm in new orleans as part of the real world. and i would take issue with when we were growing up. i think we're still growing up, joe. what's going on in the real world, not just new orleans, but starting here, we've had -- we were down on our knees in some combination of good government, good leadership, not profligate spending with the private sector. we've had number one education gains in the country. we're the number one brain game, the number one entrepreneurial start- start-up. the principles are winning. there are 30 republican governors out there. scott walker just won his fight, in those 30 states that are being governed with economic principles and good government principles, reform government, modern government. their econ
